Enhanced Features

Routing Enhancements

The routing algorithm is improved in every version release to make sure CoPilot provides drivers with GPS navigation that is safe, efficient, and truck-legal in regions around the world. Below are highlights of routing improvements for CoPilot 10.26.0. No specific settings or other changes are necessary for these enhancements to be applied to routing.

More Efficient Routes

Generate better routes in the U.S. for 53-foot trailers.
CoPilot now incorporates more state-specific exemptions to the State and National Network when routing 53-foot trailers. In the states where exemptions to State and National Network designated highways are in place, CoPilot generates a more practical route with increased freedom to travel off the network.

53-Foot Routing
A truck route for a 53-foot trailer, south of Des Moines, Iowa. The route on the left follows the State and National Network, which is used in CoPilot 10.19 and earlier. In states where exceptions to State and National Network designated highways are in place, CoPilot 10.26.0 generates a more practical route (right) with increased freedom to travel off the network.

Safer Maneuvering

Navigate complex intersections.
The routing algorithm can also better handle turns at complex intersections of multiple roads. This includes adhering to time-based and vehicle-based turn restrictions , when they are active.

Complex Routing
In this example in northern Belgium, a truck should take the ramp (Geel-West) to the destination (red target). If the driver misses the ramp (left), they might opt to do an unsafe U-turn, as road restrictions prevent them from legally making a right turn into the roundabout, and then an immediate right turn to the destination. In CoPilot 10.26.0 (right), the driver is instead guided to do a complete loop around the roundabout, where they can safely and legally make the right turn to the destination.

Route Optimization

Optimize up to 500 stops.
The limit on the number of stops CoPilot can optimize has been increased to 500 from 300. Optimization puts stops in a logical and efficient order. ( Advanced optimization is also available as a premium add-on if your routes need to take time windows into account at each stop, or if your customers require enhanced ETAs.)

Route Customization

Route with precise metric dimensions.
Data is now stored in its native units in each country, allowing for greater metric accuracy—the nearest centimeter for length, width and height, and the nearest kilogram for weight.

Traffic Enhancements

Avoid traffic delays and closures.
Updates were made to improve how CoPilot handles the detours/alternate routes it provides due to traffic, including:

  • A new beep and text-to-speech “Traffic Alert” message informs the driver when there is a faster alternate route available to avoid a traffic delay. CoPilot then displays a pop-up message that allows the driver to accept the alternate route or choose to stay on the current route.
  • During a trip, if CoPilot detects a traffic closure, it automatically selects the best alternate route without prompting the driver for permission.

Use less cellular data for traffic.
CoPilot will not request traffic information if the vehicle’s location is within 0.1 mile from the last time it requested traffic. Once the vehicle is moving again, CoPilot sends a request for updated traffic information.

Map Download Enhancements

The following improvements were made to the way CoPilot downloads and stores map data .

Maximize disk space.
If a data download is paused and restarted, CoPilot only checks whether the remaining storage it needs is available. (For example, if a full data download is 3GB, and CoPilot pauses after downloading 1.5GB, it only checks for the remaining 1.5GB of free space when downloading resumes.)

Avoid download loops.
If a device runs out of disk space to complete a map download , the download is idled to avoid unnecessary cellular data usage.

Minimize unnecessary cellular data usage.
CoPilot can better determine whether a personal hotspot is using Wi-Fi or cellular data . That way, CoPilot will not download maps using cellular data if it is set to only allow downloads to take place when connected to a Wi-Fi network. (“WiFiOnly”=1 in config settings.)

Other Enhancements

Take advantage of expanded features in CPIK React Native.
The following enhancements were made to the CoPilot Integration Kit (CPIK) libraries for React Native:

  • The library now supports React Native versions 0.68 or earlier.
  • The GeofenceMgr and SiteMgr APIs are now available in React Native.
  • Data member names and types were standardized between iOS and Android.

Streamline your transition to Account Manager licensing.
If a device is currently licensed for CoPilot with a product key, and an Account Manager licensing activation fails, CoPilot continues to use the product key to ensure uninterrupted service. Also, The update credentials API, which allows login to CoPilot using credentials set in Account Manager , is now available in the CPIK iOS, CPIK iOS Xamarin, and React Native versions of CoPilot.

Add current location with URL launch.
If the VIEW action is called in URL launch to view a stop on the map , and the user decides to add that stop to the route, CoPilot inserts the current location as the first stop (origin) of the route.

Test CoPilot with enhanced sample apps.
Multiple enhancements have been made to CoPilot’s sample apps , including:

  • A wider array of APIs to test, especially in the React Native sample app.
  • The Android Xamarin CPIK Sample App supports integration with the Trip Management service.
  • Routing types and other features better match those available in CoPilot user interface.

Find distant POIs in Single Search. (App store versions of CoPilot only)
When using the single search (one box) feature to find a point of interest (POI), CoPilot can now be set to search Other City, instead of the current location.

View more trips in RouteReporter.
Improvements have been made to make sure CoPilot sends cancelled trips to RouteReporter , including cases where an active trip is cancelled due to a new user logging on to a device.

Removed Features

  • The spinning wheel icon that is displayed on CoPilot start-up to indicate downloads occurring in the background has been removed.
  • The billing process check CoPilot completes at start-up has been removed for enterprise/fleet customers who download CoPilot from app stores.
  • The 2005 and 2010 Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables have been removed from Windows laptop versions of CoPilot.
  • The Settings > Reset to Default button has been hidden on versions of CoPilot used by enterprise/fleet customers.

Bug Fixes

  • CoPilot now avoids generating routes that leave a major road just to return back to it. This includes motorways, interstates, and major highways with ramp structures or parallel service roads.
On/Off Routing
Unnecessary on/off routes from major roads (left) have been removed from CoPilot 10.26.0 (right).
  • Fixed an issue where CoPilot still allowed a user to select Save Maps to > SD Card, after the card was ejected from a device.
  • Fixed an issue with incorrect turn instructions in Portuguese.
  • Fixed an issue to ensure the product.cfg and customer_features.xml files remain after a CoPilot version update.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the OnMapUpdate CPIK callback to always return SUCCEEDED even when there is no map update.
  • Fixed the EnableCustOptLogs setting in the product.cfg file so that it outputs logs for the iOS version of CoPilot CPIK.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented CoPilot from connecting to the internet using the device’s proxy settings.
  • Fixed an issue where CoPilot provided two different results for house numbers in Hardinxveld-Giessendam in the Netherlands.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause CoPilot to erase the options from the Styles menu when switching between the light and dark interface options.
  • Stability fixes to prevent CoPilot and sample app crashes in certain scenarios.

Note: If you are upgrading from an earlier version, CoPilot 10.26.0 includes all of the updates made during our maintenance releases between versions. For example, please see the release notes for CoPilot 10.19.0 to view all of the changes made between 10.19.0 and 10.26.0.
